Not convinced I'd want to live close to one either...mostly for the buzz and the pesticide issue....but you just never know... For practical reasons, and due to the lifespan differences between humans dogs and cats, I'd be much more concerned about any potential risks to my human family....

I lived in a lovely brand new development in a lovely home within 2 kms of an oil refinery for 2.5 years. I could smell the oil in the air and it bothered me because I kept saying to myself...'this can't be an ideal living situation'. That was 5ish years ago and now this development is thriving with plenty of huge multi-million dollar homes. The oil smell still lingers in the air for a good part of the summer and occasional smells throughout the year. Yuck.
